What should we do when our experience seems to clash with our theology? When what we know about the character of God and how he acts is contradicted by our experience of the harsh realities of life? This is not a new situation, but one that believers have found themselves in down through the centuries. It was also the experience of Asaph, the author of Psalm 73.
In Faith Seeking Understanding Iain D. Campbell takes us on a journey through this wonderful psalm. He traces Asaph's attempts to make sense of his experience using his own rational powers, and shows us how fresh understanding came only when Asaph entered the 'sanctuary of God'. So too with us it is when we draw 'near God' that we realise where our chief and lasting good is to be found.
